“Moving Forms: The Global Circulation of Victorian Narrative Innovations ”
Organizers: Pablo Mukherjee (Warwick); John Plotz, (Brandeis)
Abstracts sought for a panel that will explore ways in which narrative innovations, or generic and formal variants, circulate globally between (an approximate date-range only) 1880-1900. The post-Darwin rise of Naturalist fiction under various names is one area of special interest; another is crime fiction’s global circulation; another is the debates on “diffusion” of folk-tales (e.g. Lang, Jacobs et. al.). But other instances are equally welcome.
